Acute abdominal aortic occlusion is a rare injury with potentially devastating consequences. Clinically, patients present with severe pain of the bilateral lower limbs with paresthesia or paraplegia. Here, we present a case of thrombotic occlusion of the infrarenal portion of the abdominal aorta with extension to bilateral iliac arteries following a road traffic accident in a young adult. It also highlights the complications associated with thromboemboli arising from blunt abdominal trauma probably due to delayed hospital presentation.
